In trying to make the best of a bad situation, late night comics have used Obama impersonators, mourned the loss of the panda cam and mocked Fox News’s coverage. Miley Cyrus lent Saturday Night Live a hand in a shutdown sketch.
“The Daily Show” host spent time targeting broadcast news coverage of the shutdown. On Fox News, Sean Hannity called it the “liberal shutdown,” while Steve Doocy of “Fox & Friends” compared the lack of protection in Benghazi, Libya to the security surrounding the World War II memorial. Others were mocked for the use of apocalyptic-like clocks that counted down to the shutdown.Brad Barket/Associated Press
